PYW Roland Garros



Bienvenue à Paris!

Linetskaya shocks all

Three Russian players have made it to the semi finals of the largest clay court event in the world. Competing with the Russian trio is Belgian Kim Clijsters who, after an early loss in Hasselt followed by a long period of injury, is sure to make the Top 10 after this week.

In an entertaining quarter final match, Clijsters took care of the last Frenchwoman remaining in the tournament. Mary Pierce fought for what she's worth, took an early lead, but couldn't keep up with Clijsters in the end.

Clijsters' next opponent is Elena Dementieva. In a battle of the Russians, Dementieva crushed Anastasia Myskina. Myskina managed to keep up in the first set, but after that loss she was shattered and failed to win a game.

Another Russian, Nadia Petrova saw her opponent, youngster Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic, win more games than here in the entire match. But the 6-4 0-6 6-4 scoreline resulted in Petrova taking home the win, leaving Vaidisova with a memorable result, but an empty feeling too.

Surprise quarter finalist Evgenia Linetskaya keeps up her amazing run here in the City of Love. And Linetskaya surely must love Paris, cause her win over Gisela Dulko was memorable. The Argentine girl was leading 6-1 5-3 and seemed to be cruising. She lost the second set and the third set was thrilling. Linetskaya eventually came up 6-5, Dulko levelled but the Russian failed to capitulate.

The tension is rising. Who will be crowned Queen of Paris this week? Once again, it's your call. Vote for who you would like to win these matches!
